Backfield In Motion by Jami Davenport

Releasing October 1st
The Seattle Lumberjacks, Book 4 



Star running back Bruce “Bruiser” Mackey has heard those words his entire life, especially after his twin brother’s tragic accident. He might use his surfer-boy good looks to land lucrative endorsements for his secret charity, but he hates books being judged by their covers. Which is why it’s wrong that his friend MacKenzie Hernandez is intent on giving herself a makeover.

Sure, Mac and her father have been reeling financially since her brother disappeared three years ago, and Lumberjacks management gives an annual scholarship that might get her life back on track, but he can’t imagine anyone smarter, sexier, or more beautiful than Mac already is. He can’t keep his hands off her—and the more they spend time together, the less he wants to. She’s perfect as is. One way or another, he’ll make sure the team’s tomboy groundskeeper gets a full ride. And between the two of them, they can learn to accept what’s behind them and look downfield to a future full of win.

My Review: 

4.4 Star Review – Backfield In Motion

I recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book by Jami.  This book includes passion, laughs, heartache, and a missing person. 

Bruce “Bruiser” Mackey is a pretty boy.  He plays football and models.  So everyone thinks he is all about making money.  What people don’t know is all his modeling money goes to a secret charity. 

MacKenzie “Mac” Hernandez is working for the lumberjacks.  She is trying to get a scholarship to finish college and take over when her boss retires.  She is told that she needs to go to the company BBQ and bring a date.

The other Lumberjacks decide she will get a makeover and Bruiser would take her to the BBQ.  He tells her he will take her even though his best friend wants to date her (but he is out of town).  He is amazed by the makeover but feels that she looked better before.  They go to the BBQ together and end up almost kissing.  After overhearing a conversion at the BBQ she leaves alone. 

As time goes by they spend more and more time together.  But she feels Bruiser is not really ready for a relationship as he still has not shared his past or any of his secrets.  Things come up that break them up but they keep coming back together.  But is it worth it to keep trying and not ending up together?

Bruiser has a horrible trauma in his past he does not share with anyone.  Whenever anyone gets too close he pushes them away so they never find out his secrets.  Will he ever share his past with Mac?  Does he even feel that he needs to?

Will Mac get the scholarship she worked so hard for or will something prevent her from getting that?  Will she spend the rest of her life on nights and weekends dropping everything to help her father search for her missing brother?  Will Bruiser be able to deal with her cancelling plans to help her father look for her missing brother?

In the end will all the twists and turns in the relationship help make it stronger or break it apart?

 Fourth and Goal


Seattle Lumberjacks Book 1

Struggling pro football wide receiver Derek Ramsey was once Rachel McCormick’s best friend and lover. She’s about to help him get back his game.

Stuck with an empty bank account, an uncanny ability for evaluating football talent, and a dogged determination to succeed in a man’s world, Rachel swears to do just that. When Derek’s coach suggests sex as an excellent pre-game tension reliever, she takes one for the team. The next day, Derek has the best performance of his not-so illustrious career. Soon Derek and Rachel are racking up nights in bed–and other places–and the team is racking up wins. But Derek knows the truth of a secret Rachel swore to reveal, a truth that destroyed her father years before. A truth that might destroy Derek, too. Torn between love and loyalty, Rachel sees time winding down. It’s fourth and goal, one second left on the clock. The next play must be made for her heart.

Seattle Lumberjacks Book 2

Quarterback Tyler Harris is about to find the woman who can get past his defensive line and reach his heart.

With two championships in as many years, superstar Tyler Harris is the best quarterback in the league. Gorgeous and rich, he’s at the top of his game. But everyone’s looking to take him down. There’s a building media frenzy around an unfortunate accident, and the only safe place seems a rundown mansion deep in the San Juans and owned by his late great uncle. There, Tyler gets sacked by the sassy redhead next door. It’s more alive than he’s felt in years.

Lavender Mead has a good reason to dislike jocks, namely an absentee father who deserted the family to coach college football. Maybe that explains her penchant for bad boys who play ball for a living and break hearts for a hobby. Her new neighbor seems just the type. Yet, something is different about Tyler, and sometimes love requires a Hail Mary. You draw back your arm, pray…and give it all up to fate. And sometimes you win your ring.

Seattle Lumberjacks Book 3

After twelve years in the league, all Zach Murphy wants is a Super Bowl ring. He’s been about hard hits not smooth manners, about breaking quarterbacks not making small talk at cocktail parties. But now he’s shattered something else. After dumping a tray of drinks on the team owner’s snooty daughter and accidentally feeling up the Governor’s wife, his tenure with his team looks perilously short. And things are getting worse.

Life is looking up for Kelsie Carrington-Richmond. A onetime beauty pageant star and mean girl, she only recently stopped living out of her car. But both those times have passed. Her Finishing School for Real Men has a real shot, and the Seattle Lumberjacks have hired her to polish up their roughest player. Except…it’s Zach. Long ago she broke his heart. He’s just the beast she remembers–gruff, protective–but she’s nothing like the beauty from his past. Yet, getting knocked down happens, and getting back up makes a contender. And they both have the hearts of champions.
